Implants

A strong bite with artificial roots

Implants not only work well, they are also very stable and help to preserve the bone. They are clinically highly successful due to them being long-lasting without the appearance of any abnormal results or damage to the jaw-bone.

Furthermore, it is mostly possible to avoid the grinding down of the remaining natural teeth.

Nowadays implants are usually made of titanium with various different surfaces and systems made of special ceramics are also occasionally used. The implant bedding is prepared in the jawbone by using an appropriate drill.

A perfectly fitting implant can then be screwed or sunk into place.

When do we use implants?

Provided that there is enough bone to root an implant, artificial tooth roots are used in the following clinical situations:

  • in a toothless jaw to implant teeth
  • in a toothless jaw to make a removable denture permanent
  • to fit a permanent denture on a shortened row of teeth in the back of the mouth
  • as a single implant or in the case of gaps to prevent the grinding of adjacent healthy teeth
  • in the case of bigger gaps to support natural pillar teeth
  • in the case of malformation or after surgery whenever a conventional treatment is not possible

How does an implantation proceed?

An extensive and thorough medical investigation of the hard and soft tissues takes place before any procedure together with an examination of the jaw function. Plaster models are then made in order to measure the anatomical situation. Suitable x-rays are taken and surgical templates are also produced. These templates help to determine the optimal position for the implant.

An implant of the correct length and diameter is selected before the surgery itself, which is almost always performed under local anesthetic – although a patient can be given a full anesthetic under exceptional circumstances. And finally the implant bed is prepared so that the implant procedure can be carried out.

The stitches are removed 7 to 10 days after surgery. However, in order to achieve bone stability, it is not until the final treatment, which usually takes place 12 weeks after the initial surgery, that the implant should be put under pressure. When the healing period is over, the implant is exposed and a complementary construction added, onto which the implant is then firmly attached.

We refer patients to our specialists for oral and maxillofacial surgery.

The planning and the crowning of implants are carried out in our practice.
